Candice Accola is engaged to Joseph – not Morgan but King
A huge congratulations to Candice Accola, the 26-year old star of The Vampire Diaries, who announced her engagement to Joseph King after accepting his proposal in Florence, Italy, Wednesday the 29th. Nina Dobrev, her BFF on the show and in real life, quickly congratulated her via Twitter.
Nina Dobrev’s Tweet about Candice’s engagement
Dying right now! So excited/thrilled/happy/hyperventilating over your engagement! Match made in heaven!
What colors are we thinking for the bridesmaids dresses? Because yellow isn’t a good color on me.. 😛 haha
If Nina and Ian hadn’t recently broken up, maybe there would have been another engagement announcement.

Joseph King, 33, is the guitarist for The Fray, and he made sure his fans knew the happy news by posting a close-up of Candice and her ring. “I’m a lucky man,” Joseph said, to which Candice responded, “Cheers from the future Mr.&Mrs. Joseph Aaron King.”
Candice and Joseph apparently are vacationing in Italy, sightseeing in Florence and the vineyards around Tuscany. She previously discussed how important it is for her to have a partner who likes to travel.
Candice on travel and food
I don’t think I could have a genuine relationship with someone who didn’t love to travel and appreciate new foods.
Traveling is a big part of Candice’s life and it’s important to find somebody she can share it with.
You learn so much about yourself when you’re traveling with someone. It’s also a huge reason why they say that you shouldn’t get married to someone until you’ve traveled with them. Being in close confines like that for an extended period forces you to explore different sides to yourself.
Candice has been traveling quite a bit recently going to various Cons, like the recent BloodyNightcon in Brussels. She previously dated Zach Roerig, who plays Matt Donovan, one of the few remaining humans on The Vampire Diaries. They ended their relationship in June, 2012, which means that Joseph and Candice have been dating for at least a year.
A silly aside, I’m reminded of the line in The Originals where Joseph Morgan‘s character, Klaus, says “I want to be King.” He probably didn’t think about that when he was saying the line! And Joseph has his own flame in real life, with Persia White.
I’m betting all The Originals and Vampire Diaries cast and crew are elated at the news, so here’s hoping they’re planning a big engagement party when the happy couple return to Atlanta in July to start filming for the fall season! Pictures, please! Lots and lots of pictures of Candice and Joseph!
